Today's winner ir,: Jon Orr, 11, Columbus, Ohio Did you know that when the French tried lo build a Panama canal, they had to give up chiefly because the construction c r e w s were struck down by yellow fever? In 1000, Walter Heed discovered the cause of yellow I'evei- and how it wa strans- mited. As a result, work on the canal was able to be done and the canal was completed in 1014. Yellow fever is an acute disease in which the patient has fever, jaundice, and vomiting. If it is an isolated case, the attack may be mild and the patient is fairly certain to recover. But if there is an epidemic of yellow fever, as many as 50 per cent of the patients may die. Yellow fever is caused by a virus which attacks the liver chiefly. The liver cells are extensively damaged, which results in jaundice. In fact, it is the yellow to brown color of the skin which gives the disease its name. The virus is transmitted by mosquitoes. The female mosquito of a certain species sucks the blood of a person with yellow fever during the first three days after that, person became infected. After about twelve (lays, the virus in the mosquito becomes infective. Then when it bites a person who is not immune to yellow fever, that person will develop the disease. There is no drug that can cure yellow fever, so prevention is what is important. There is a vaccine that makes people immune to yellow fever. Also, once a person has it, he is immune. And of course, mosquito control in those areas where yellow fever is found, is also a way to prevent it. OONT FORGET MRS DINNER P/ARTY FOR US TOMORROW NK3HT..,/AND N6ED TO TBLL YOU SHE'S / THE MRS.
